-founder of shelter hoover capital. and steven weiss of short hills capital and author of "the big win." brian kelly, was this predominantly today a technology correction that spread? is that the bottom, bottom line? >> yeah. especially when you look at other asset classes. i mean, we look at the euro. that was barely down today. you look at bonds. they weren't reaching for bonds. the dollar index was barely up. it wasn't up 1% or 2%. it was up less than a half percent, i believe. so it was. it was people repricing, getting out of tech stocks that for some reason they didn't see before that there actually might be a problem in europe. and now we've certainly gone the other direction from where we were on september 13th, 14th. the euphoria over the policy action. now we're at that despair of wow, everything could be really terrible. and i'm with you, larry. i think this is a buying opportunity here. >> well, i'm glad to hear that because you know more about it than i do. steve weiss, welcome back to the program. >> thanks, larry. >> i just want to go -- look, for the week stocks were up a wee bit. fo
of trading advantage from the chicago mercantile exchange, steven guilfoil, john wood of j.j. w and associates from the nymex a few blocks away in lower man hat the tan and steven rosen from stock gen joins us from manhattan and bob pisani as well. steven guilfoil what an achievement to get things going, uphill battle. >> most of us have problems in our own neighborhoods, had to commute in, most of us had to drive in, maybe walk a great distance, but i'd say 80% to 90% of us are here and surprisingly the liquidity is here. the volume is about where it's supposed to be. >> john, what about the nymex one of the areas in the eye of the storm. what has it been like in terms of getting business back on track? >> we have problems with phones today and it was just the floor was probably about half full. it was just really a logistic nightmare just getting here. i live down in the jersey shore so just getting up here was quite a chore. you get back to the customers and towards the latter part of the trading day you saw a pickup a little bit. >> we want to get to breaking news, stand by,
, whether it does open? what's your best -- handicap it for me, jon and steven? >> if the news is exactly as steven said, very small chance that something positive comes out as far as this -- these weren't the exact numbers, that would be the outlier, sue. but i think overall people will assess this and the drop is not done yet. in other words, i think that $651-ish number i quoted earlier for the 100-day, i think that gets tested like that. because these numbers are just dismal. the numbers that they put out. and i don't think you're only going to see a 9% drop out of the stock on this. i think it is more like that 12% to 15%. >> let's go to sue right now. >> thank you, guys. i just want to tell you that the early -- earlier this morning, pete, r.r. donnelly, the financial printer -- are we going to herb for this? i've got the release. go ahead, herb. go ahead. all right. well, herb -- as herb gets miked up, i'll read it to you. earlier this morning, r.r. donnelly, the financial printer, informed us that they had filed our draft 8-page earnings statement without authorization. we have c
never have worn. i've done seven movies with steven and i'm enormously proud. >> he plays lee libberace's companion who filed a suit against the singer in 1982. >> did you have to have love scenes? >> oh, yeah. >> you look great in it. the shots i saw you look great. >> i had good wigs. >> sign this lease and that gives us the right to drill on your land. >> his next project, co-starring and co-writing turn on a film tackling the issue of fracking. >> it speaks to american identity, where are we now? when this incredibly, the stakes are so incredibly high. >> do you write a lot? >> i haven't sat down and written since goodwill hunting. >> that was fabulous. >> we had a good time doing it and i didn't realize how much i missed it. >> the promised land opens this holiday season and behind the candle opera airs on hbo. >>> i got a front row seat to one of the rare bipartisan moments, thursday's al smith dinner in new york. great to see them take a night off for the campaign event for this charity tradition in american politics. thanks for being with me. each week keep it here where wall st
. >>> joining us now is steven engler. i want to bring up first the sterling, because we've seena just a little bit of movement in that trade today after what's been fairly stable trade for the currency of late, this on the back of some of the uk services number showing some weakening out there among corporations. do you think this was a reason to sell today? >> well, i think sterling is a very troubled currency. i mean, you have to understand that it's been trading very close wli the euro in between the euro and the dollar. it's a very weak economy after years of low interest rates, after quantitative easing, an exchange range that's depreciated a lot over the last three or four years relative to everyone else. and the fact that the economy is so weak right now, i think is a very negative signal for the market. and for investors with respect to sterling. it will do well against the dollar if the euro goes up, but on its own i think it's going to underperform. >> i want to take a look at the euro. about a tenth of a percent. it doesn't seem to be struggling too much. the services number was bet
the investigation of the 9/11/2012 attacks that killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three others. but republicans at the house hearing charged the obama state department showed a lack of concern last summer after u.s. facilities in benghazi were attacked twice. >> i believe personally with more assets, more resources, just meeting the minimum standards, we could have and should have saved the life of ambassador stevens and the other people that were there. >> reporter: one of the witnesses agreed. lieutenant colonel andrew wood ran embassy security till august. >> the situation remained uncertain and reports from some libyans indicated it was getting worse. >> reporter: just five u.s. agents protected the main u.s. compound. staffers recommended more. >> there wasn't sufficient resources provided. >> that was one of the main reasons i continued to ask for those resources, yes. >> reporter: but back in washington, deputy assistant secretary of state charlene lam said, no. >> sir, we had the correct number of assets in benghazi at the time of 9/11 for what had been agreed upon. >>
is one stock to avoid. thank you for joining us. steven, let me kick this off with you. you say price increases are going to continue and we'll see even more in 2013. who has been the hardest hit and where do you want to avoid? >> where we see the hardest hit is companies that have higher exposure to some of the land-based proteins. primarily in beef and pork. less effeaffected are names wit higher exposure to seafood and coffee. one name to avoid, as you mentioned, bob evans, has about 33% of its total food costs in sows, the heavy pigs that are used for some of the pork products. that's not priced -- not on a contract basis. that's one reason we would hold off on this stock right now. >> why do i want to be avoiding those companies that are raising prices? wouldn't that be a positive? i know thatmers ultimately gets hit but if they're raising prices, what does that do for margins? >> margins can be helped by raising prices. the question is, how much of these items can be entered into contracts? that's why we like some of the companies that have bigger supply chains, like darden and
for the market. we're talking right now with our market strategist. in a moment, steven wood of russell investments will join me. ralph, i want to kick this off with you. for a while you have been very, very bullish on this market. you it would me this market will climb a wall of worry. you have been right for a long time on this prediction. anything about today's trading and these earnings that we're seeing change your mind on this? >> not at all. maria, we've been doing literally sideways for the last four weeks. right now, being very, very technical, the market sitting on the low end of that range at 13,325. i suspect we'll break it down. so we drop another 5% or so. i think this is a golden buying opportunity if you're long-term. i want to own the exons. i want to own the ges. i want to own the travelers. this is a great buying opportunity. i've been tweeting people saying if you're a trader, you have to be defensive. >> given the fact the fundamentals are in the all that great, i mean, how do you justify buying stocks when you see revenue growth where it is? >> well, yes, i think m
break down what to expect tomorrow. steven from emp funds is with me, andrew keen from keen on the market and krifchristopher from wells fargo advisers. thanks for joining us. >> great having us on. >> steven, let's kick it off with you. wa are you expecting tomorrow when trading resumes after this two-day shutdown? >> we do expect relatively low volume. really due to personnel having quite difficulty in the east just getting to work and getting through all the mess. but we don't expect significant impact because the -- the catalyst to what we've gone through in this superstorm sandy really doesn't have a lot to do with our long-term outlook or the view of the markets. so we don't really expect an impact. for us it's just like any other day. but we do expect some volume relating to many strategies that have rebalancing. one thing we need to consider, we have had good reports with the schiller home price index increasing 2% since august which is the best we've seen in two years. >> right. >> we expect everything to go back to normal come tomorrow. >> all right. we have 30 sec
, beginning already actually. but the thinking is whether or not there is a war of words. and steven stanley, the economist steven stanley, doesn't think that bernanke would win that. he said, "the fed chairman could resist the pressure, could trigger a -- potentially triggering an ugly standoff. in that standoff bernanke would have the low cards. >> bernanke wouldn't want to politicize the fed but one wonders whether bernanke, knowing that mr. romney has said i'm not going to reappoint you, whether mr. bernanke would say some time in 2013, okay, i'm going to step down and give you the chance to appoint somebody now. >> so bernanke would be urged by people who know the fed and love the fed not to do that. >> to say no. >> because that would be giving up the fed's independence. on the other hand, this is one of the things that's being discussed now. assume there are strong gains in the house, strong gains in the senate. that the republicans control both houses of congress and the presidency and there's strong criticism of the fed. bernanke could maintain his policy and his independence, and y
about the stock market. perhaps to find their own therapeutics. seventh, i would appoint a steven jobs memorial competitiveness czar to figure out how our businesses could be made more speft and find out what they need. not government handouts but trying to get educated engineers to help these companies. i would reappoint ben bernanke as chairman of the federal reserve. if it weren't for him, he would never have gotten out of the great depression to begin with. without bernanke, we have nationalized the banks and be stuck with unemployment over 10%. here's the bottom line. nobody asked me. i'm not running. i'm not part of any debate. but i stand for higher stock prices for all. if you elect me,ly put through my plan to switch to clean burning natural gases, lower taxes on dividend, educate the masses on money, clean up the skies, rebuild our infrastructure and reappoint bernanke to give liberty, justice and higher stock prices for all. that's a platform i could vote for, if only obama or romney would embrace it. lawrence in texas, lawrence? >> caller: jim, how are you doing? i have a q

for calling in with that exclusive. steven, your comments. >> doesn't matter why he's gone. buy the stock. >> a lot more coming up on the fast money show at 5:00 which i will be hosting today. here is power lunch. p sfwlo >>> the second half of the trading day starts right now and what a fascinating day it has been and promises to be as we move through the afternoon and into the evening. board room brawl after solid earnings yesterday, citigroup's pandit as you surely know is out today and now the questions mount and mount. we had some answers just a moment ago from maria bartiromo. there will be more that comes out one has to assume. we'll speak to an analyst who upgraded the stock just a few weeks ago. is he standing by that call. and we'll speak with a shareholder who has wanted pandit side lined no years. he got his wish. what happens? we'll break it down. and don't forget this chart, it is the dow, it is rally time . markets higher by 119 points. sue. >> in-dead deed we are all over citigroup story. we want to begin with the markets because we have a big rally going on. we're only ab
falling today. the stock has been down because of slow growth in customer sales. steven anderson in a restaurant ann list. he has a buy rating of o $335 price target. jeffrey joins us with the neutral waiting on the stock. steven, let me kick off with you. it is $100 higher than right now, that's 40%. that's a very bold call to maintain after what they told us, isn't it? >> certainly days of 40 multiples are not over. we think chipotle is making market share gains. and we think it was a bit conservative. >> how can they raise prices? how can they possibly raise prices, steven, when taco bell is already there with a lower price men you and potentially eating their lunch if you like. >> we disagree with that. it really did not change. so when taco pell introduced their new menu -- >> they have not raised prices yet. >> no they have not. >> so how can they raise prices and maintain their competition with tack toe bell. >> it's a different product. taco bell is coming from the same kitchen and condiments, chipotle offers a different product that is a different customer experience. >>
tomorrow morning. we get right to it right now. ubs, steven nicholas, and good to have you on the program, everybody. let's kick it off with you, what are you looking at tomorrow? 30 seconds on the clock. >> well, if you're watching emerging markets, look out for brazil industrial production tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. probably mark the 12th straight month of contracting ip, going back to last september. this probably is most importantly for growth but also let's keep in mind policies. in short, we think you're probably going to need a very strong rebound in industrial activity for brazil if it abandons the easy monetary policy or the currency war effort. >> all right. thank you so much. and kevin, you're up, 30 seconds on the clock. what do you want to look at when that opening bell sounds? >> well, the leader has been the u.s. consumer. you have to watch auto sales here in the united states. we're expecting a number of something like 14.4, 14.5 million units at an analyzed rate. we're also going to get data out of china in terms of services data. and i think ultimately the data that's
demand is going to come from. >> all right. steven, one thing we are expecting from these quarterly numbers is a contraction in earnings. they are expected to be negative for the third quarter. i expect it to bounce back in the fourth quarter. wrote are you expecting any big blowups? we saw norfolk southern, caterpillar, these large multinationals that are disappointing. what's on the horizon? >> we are zfdefinitely in a maturing earnings cycle. i think earnings will come in line with expectations that have been reduced dramatically. i think more importantly than the earnings may well be the top line revenue. so analysts are going to get out a microscope, be looking at revenues to see what's happening there. this is going to be a challenging environment. mandy, great point. china's deceleration is very important. it's very real. you're seeing that in commodity complex. i think that revenue line is going to be very, very important. that's probably going to come in soft. >> all right. we'll leave it there. thanks, everybody. appreciate your time tonight. we'll keep watching this marke
documents scattered on the floors, including evacuation plans in case of attack, ambassador stevens' schedule and the names of libyan nationals working for the consulate, all lying in the open unsecured. the investigators have remained in tripoli hundreds of miles away from benghazi because of safety concerns and libyan contractors say they have not been contracted by the libyan or american governments. the post reports the only security at the compound is two private guards paid for by the landlord. larry, back to you. >> wow, great stuff. i turn back to the kudlow caucus for a quick whip around on this subject. is the benghazi couatastrophe going to become a big issue in this campaign? >> i think it dents president obama's reputation as an international leader. i think ambassador rice got it completely wrong trying to cover up perhaps what really happened here and trying to blame it on a video that we now know is clearly not the reason why they had this -- >> you know, this thing is not redounding to the president's credit. he calls it a bump in the road. a very well liked ambassa
therapeutics. seventh, i would appoint a steven jobs memorial competitiveness czar to figure out how our businesses could be made more competitive and find out what they need in order to hire and expand, not government handouts but perhaps trying to get educated engineers trying to help these companies. i would reappoint ben bernanke as chairman of the federal reserve. if it weren't for him, he would never have gotten out of the great recession to begin with and might be as bad as japan or anybody else. without bernanke, we have nationalized the banks and be stuck with unemployment over 10%. he's done his best to keep the wealth engine that is the stock market sputtering. as he gives it everything she's got. here's the bottom line. nobody asked me. i'm not running. i'm not part of any debate. but i stand for higher stock prices for all. if you elect me, i will put through my plan to refinance the deficits is, switch to opec busting job creating natural gases, lower taxes on dividends, chakts the masses on money, clean the skies, rebuild our infrastructure and reappoint ben scotty bernank
. >> steven, you got 30 seconds. >> thank you. we will most likely expect low volatility you continue low volume in the u.s. stock market but we are expecting with earnings season beginning tomorrow, excluding alcoa, could accept lower earnings expectations, which is the worst postrecovery we have seen in a recession in a long time. we need to recommend cautious optimism. >> all right. chad, over to you. >> two things for tomorrow, alcoa, reporting after the close, expect about a 13% decline in revenues as well as the nfib small business survey is going to come out. that is going to be a little bit bettha
for your portfolio going forward? hello, gentlemen. nice to see you here. steven, what does it mean next week? we get piles of earnings. we seem to think that would be what dominates the markets. should we also be worried about chinese gdp? >> i would be more focused on the earnings. they're slowing down. they're not giving the market a big drive. i'm afraid, you know, we have a lot of different reports and readings. the real big drivers are europe and the u.s. elections. in terms of the big moves, we still have a ways to wait. the last big moves were the ecb and the federal reserve. the market ran up on those. that was great news for the market. there's no big bullish driver force right now. that's why we're getting this tentative move. a great chart you showed earlier where it fades. nobody wants to benegative, but they're cautious. >> they are right now. mark, what was the benchmark you're waiting for next week here? >> we have a couple data points i'm looking at. that's reports from the empire and philly fed service manufacturing to see if they corroborate the ism reading we had a we
. the last message that chris stevens sent back before he was killed was he wanted better security at the consulate in benghazi. british embassy had been closed. there were two attacks. i think it's a disaster in the making for the president because like most of these things, the act itself is bad enough but the coverup is always worse. >> senator, do us a favor. connect the dots for us. the average guy and gal out there are concerned about jobs. they're concerned about domestic economy. i know that tonight's theme of the final presidential debate is about foreign policy. connect the dots. how do you get to the economy and resonate with people based on tonight's happenings? >> first of all of course a strong economy allows us to have a strong national defense. our former chairman of the giant chiefs of staff said our greatest vulnerability national security-wise was a weak economy. trade has to come in here some place. a lot of americans don't understand the importance of trade. it is really vital. the only three trade agreements in the last four years had already been negotiated b

ago tonight on the anniversary of 9/11, ambassador chris stevens and three other brave americans were killed in a terrorist attack in benghazi. the state department has now made clear there were no protesters there. it was a preplanned assault by heavily armed men. wasn't this a massive intelligence failure, vice president biden? >> it was a tragedy. chris stevens was one of our best. we lost three other brave americans. i can make absolutely two commitments to you and all the american people tonight. one, we will find and bring to justice the men who did this. and secondly we will get to the bottom of it. wherever the facts lead us, wherever they lead us, we will make clear to the american public because whatever mistakes were made will not be made again. when you're looking at a president, martha, it seems to me that you should take a look at his most important responsibility, that's caring for the massive security of the country. the best way to do that is take a look at how had he's handled the issues of the day. in iraq the president said he would end the war. governor romney sai

and we want to get a question from philip. >> energy secretary steven chu has been on record three times stating it's not policy of his department to help low are gas prices. do you agree with secretary chu that this is not the job of the energy department? >> the most important thing we can do is make sure we control our own energy. so here's what i've done since i've been president. we have increased oil production to the highest levels in 16 years. natural gas production is the highest it's been in decades. we have seen increases in coal production and coal employment. but what i've also said is, we can't just produce traditional sources of energy. we've got to look to the future. that's why we doubled fuel efficiency standards on cars. that means that in the middle of the next decade any car you buy you're going to end up going twice as far on a gallon of gas. that's why we've doubled clean energy production like wind and solar and bio fuels and all these things have contributed to us lowering our oil imports to the lowest levels in 60 years. i want to build on that. and that means y
